Better Backup than Sorry

I wonder if there’s any statistics on the number of bloggers that keep a backup of all their blog posts. I used to NOT keep backup copies. My reason for this is simple: I trusted WordPress. Now I am not saying that WordPress is not trustworthy but it is always better to be safe than sorry. I’m saying this from experience. About a year ago while we were undergoing a redesign, for whatever answering comments on your posts) but doesn’t it make so much more sense to save yourself the trouble of having to rewrite posts? Now, if you have a personal blog it might not be as important to be able to recover your old blog posts but if you put [sentimental] value in it then make sure you have a backup as well. Again, the old adage still holds true – BETTER BE SAFE THAN SORRY.
